Parent View - Give Ofsted your view on your child's school


The government now classes a pupil as a persistent absentee if their attendance at school drops below 90%.  For those children whose attendance drops below this level, parents/carers will be informed and discussions will take place in order to consider what steps are required in order to improve their child’s attendance.

The Education Regulations state that applications for leave must be made in advance by a parent with whom the child lives and can only be authorised by the school in exceptional circumstances. Each application is considered individually by the school.


If a child is absent through sickness or a medical appointment, it is important that the school is notified on the day the child is absent.  This allows the absence to be authorised.
